It's Military Saves Month!

SAFE is proud to be teaming up with the Military Saves Organization. For the whole month of April, we'll be giving special focus to our military community and their financial wellness. 
 

 

Week 1: Saving Automatically
The easiest way to save? Automatically! It doesn’t matter how much or what you’re saving for, when you make the smart decision to have a portion of your income automatically deposited into a savings account, you have increased your chance for success. Visit a SAFE branch today, or call one of our account experts at 1-800-763-8600, ext. 2375 to find out more about direct deposit and how you can start saving AUTOMATICALLY!
 
Week 2: Save for the Unexpected 
The past year has taught us that we have to be as prepared as possible for the unexpected. While we all have future savings goals, having a rainy day fund to support emergency needs, like a car repair, dental bill, or even a last-minute flight home should be a top priority.
 
Week 3: Save to Retire
It’s never too soon to prepare for retirement. In fact, the earlier you start to prepare the easier it is to save. It's important to set aside time to understand your retirement needs and make a plan to meet them.
 
Week 4: Save by Reducing Debt 
It’s time that we recognize that by paying down their debt, service members, military families, and veterans ARE saving! Actively reducing your debt means you’re saving on interest, avoiding late fees, and maintaining or increasing your credit score. 
 
Week 5: Save as a Family 
How much better would our military community be with money if we empowered not only our service members and veterans to save, but also our military spouses? What if we, as military families, had a plan and developed our strategy together? What if we were intentional about teaching good money and savings habits to our military kids from a young age? 
 
Military Saves is a campaign coordinated by the nonprofit Consumer Federation of America (CFA) and is dedicated to helping servicemembers and their families save money, reduce debt, and build wealth.
